Dutch Organ Concert | Sunday, May 5 2019
7:00pm – 8:00pm
From the Oude Kerk to Playing It Cool!
Concert organist Rhonda Sider Edgington will take listeners on a tour of Dutch organ music through the ages, starting with Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck. Born in 1562 and organist for decades at the famous Oude Kerk in Amsterdam, Sweelinck composed a variation set on the famous Dutch folk tune, Unter den Linden grune. Continuing on through the 19th and early 20th century, Rhonda will introduce listeners to living Dutch composers such as Bert Matter and Ad Wammes, whose "Play it Cool!" was written in 2012. Today’s composers are influenced by modern music such as jazz, rock, and minimalism, and combine all these elements to create new worlds of music.
